Happy Sunday ya’ll!!!
I feel like I have been missing from my blog for a little while. I have been busy!! The holidays seemed to fly by with traveling and then having company. It seems like there is always something to distract me (namely my new-found obsession with the show Duck Dynasty) from creating my quilting/crafting/sewing to do list! The latest distraction is my sweet, beautiful new great-niece Jaidyn Mariah (better known as Baby J). She was born on Wednesday, January 2 at 10:01 pm. Baby J and her Mommy, my niece Emily are doing well. I was able to meet Jaidyn yesterday and hold her, snuggle her, watch her sleep, snuggle her, soothe her…you get the point. Needless to say, I am in love, and who wouldn’t be with this sweet face?
I was telling her how much I am going to spoil her in this picture.
Today I finally got around to getting some things together that I had on my mental to do list from last year that I kept telling myself I would do in 2013. Here are a few of the selected projects I am going to start to work on.
I finally got the back fabric for my Mom’s queen size quilt. I just need to piece the back and then baste it and quilt it. FYI, I HATE BASTING. However, I want to get this quilt done and off my list so it’s project #1.
Here is a better, clearer picture of the back fabric.
I also want to make some place mats and or a table runner for my dining room table. These are some of the left overs from my Mom’s quilt that will be perfect for my kitchen/dining room area. I am going to try to do a triangle pattern for the patchwork. I have never done triangles before and also am going to work on my FMQ with this project.
Remember that shortcake quilt I made for my Mom? If not, you can see it here. I am going to make another with the fabrics above. I am hoping to give it to someone special in my family that I have been meaning to make a quilt for.
And….I am still working on my granny squares.
Oh, and, a big thank you to Debbie at A Quilter’s Table. She is generously sending me some of her scraps to get me started on a scrap quilt. Also, she put on her Facebook page a link to my Scraps post. Thank you Debbie!!
As always, Keep Simply Delighting!
